Event Description

Preparing Dangerous Goods (Hazardous Materials) for Transportation on European Roads (in Accordance With ADR)
2 Days

The ADR is now closely aligned with the structure of the IMDG Code and the ICAO Technical Instructions. However, ADR does have variations, which mean that simple compliance with the “UN” system (e.g., IMDG Code, ICAO/IATA requirements) does not ensure compliance for the road journey in Europe.

This course will consider the problems encountered by US exporters to Europe, including the interface between modes of transport. 

The course describes the structure of ADR and highlights the differences between it and the other regulations. The method of instruction will assume the participant has a thorough knowledge of the UN regulatory structure and its provisions for classification, packaging and hazard communication and will teach the ADR provisions by showing the differences. Instruction will focus on non-bulk packages although some tank issues will also be discussed.
